Still, I love a good Indiana Jones-esque treasure hunt, so I figured I'd give this book a try. I kept picking it up, hoping it would get interesting, but I'd end up putting it down after a few pages.
After a while, the story picks up, but even then, the characters are "stock," the plot twists are pretty predictable, the bad guys are all Islamic or secular, and the good guys are all Christians/Jews.
Overall, it's not awful, but neither was it especially good. This is why I give it three stars.

This book was a short, yet fascinating look into the life of John J. Pershing, who led the American forces in WWI.
It was an interesting look at both sides of his personality - on the one hand, an inflexible, demanding military leader, and on the other, a warm, caring man who cared deeply about family and friends.
